Eat Maine Foods!

Portland's winter farmers' market started yesterday, with lines of people eagerly awaiting their local eats. This market is based on email orders, which are delivered every other week. Bath does a more traditional market through the winter, and I hear other towns are getting into the winter farmers' market act. Here's what I know about these two markets (from http://themaineswitch.com/story/view/2201/). What's going on in your area?

There is also a Winter Farmers Market in Brunswick every Saturday (except 12/27). On January 3 it will move to Fort Andross from Granite Farm.
According to an article in the Times Record, the market at Fort Andross is in addition to the one at Granite Farm. Can anyone in that area confirm if they are both indeed happening every week?
As of January 10th, most vendors have left Granite Farm to join the market at Fort Andross.
Nancy English posted great photos and info about the vendors at the Fort Andross market on her Chow Maine website at: http://www.chowmaineguide.com/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&...
In Camden there are two. One that meets inside the Knox Mill on Saturday mornings and another that meets in the State of Maine Cheese company building on Route 1. I wish I knew more details about the vendors and times/dates. I have shares in a winter CSA here, so don't often get to the Farmer's Markets.
I just learned that Gardiner has a winter farmers' market too. According to a story in the Kennebec Journal (http://kennebecjournal.mainetoday.com/news/local/5746049.html), the market happens on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 2-6 pm at the Gardiner Congregational Church.
Where do you go for the Portland winter market to pick up your orders?
The pick-up spot is Monument Square. The next market takes place this Wed., Jan. 7 from 11 am- 1 pm. Here's a link to photos and a listing of available items from the last Portland Winter Farmers' Market:

Ray Routhier has a great story about the growing trend of winter farmers' markets in today's Maine Sunday Telegram. Here's the link:
